To demonstrate knowledge and understanding of: where, how and why media expands and broadens peoples understanding in the 5 main sectors. These sectors are the web, radio, TV, gaming and digital publishing. This will build on the Level 2 experience and add more depth and comprehension. The course aims to give the students as much experience in contemporary examples of this and how it fits into the ever changing world and work place landscape. The students will learn how to develop ideas, present these ideas and bring them to fruition in the various units on offer. An important element to go with this is the ability to work with a team and set out task objectives and jobs for all members that get completed to the highest level possible.
